Aloha! Looking for something to calm your nerves before you fly the unfriendly skies? ✈️ [Equal Parts Cocktails] • This riff on the famous Paper Plane cocktail is of unknown origin (at least as far as I could find). The only change here is swapping Amaro Nonino for Ancho Reyes. Obviously that is a huge change, but I must say I love the move to a spicy, savory spirit! 🌶 • Anytime I can use Ancho in something I do, but this was my first time combining it with bourbon. It was not disappointing! 😋 • Save this recipe and follow along as I share as many equal part cocktails as I can! 🍸 • Cocktail: “Half-hour Flight” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: .75oz / 22,5ml Bourbon @alpinedistilling .75oz / 22,5ml Aperol @aperolusa .75oz / 22,5ml Ancho Reyes @anchoreyes .75oz / 22,5ml fresh lemon juice • Preparation: Shake ingredients with ice / Fine strain into glass / Garnish with lemon peel plane • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #halfhourflight #paperplane #equalparts #bourbon #aperol #anchoreyes #lemon

Aloha! They say that silence is golden… 💛 • This tasty Mezcal cocktail comes from Isaac Shumway (@onewayshumway) owner of the @californiagold_bar in San Rafael, California. ☀️ • This cocktail was also featured in @imbibe magazine and has found its way on to several feeds over the last few months. 😋 • The cocktail is a mix of contrasts with the smoky Mezcal, the bitter Campari, the sweet Maraschino, and the nutty orgeat! Each sip can be a whole different experience! 🤩 • Shumway uses @delmagueymezcal in his original version, but I used the @elsilencio I had on hand. I actually thought it was quite fitting considering the name… 🤫 • Cocktail: “Great Silence” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: 1oz / 30ml Mezcal 1oz / 30ml fresh lime juice .75oz / 22,5ml Campari .5oz / 15ml orgeat syrup 2-3 dashes Maraschino liqueur • Preparation: Shake with ice / Fine strain into glass / Garnish with lime twist • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #greatsilence #mezcal #campari #orgeat #maraschino

Aloha! Happy #flashbackfriday everyone! • Nothing scream Aloha Friday like a delicious Mai Tai! In true island style, this version is inspired by a beautiful fish. 🏝 ===================================== A friend asked me a while back to make a special cocktail that was inspired by the mahi-mahi. 🐠 Since the mahi-mahi has a very distinctive appearance, the drink would need to be very colorful as well. 🎨 • This Mai Tai version is so fun and tasty. I’d love to see it on a menu someday. 😌 • Cocktail: “Mahi-mahi Tai” Glass: Hurricane • Ingredients: 1oz / 30ml light rum 1oz / 30ml gold rum 2oz / 60ml pineapple juice 1oz / 30ml orange juice .5oz / 15ml fresh lime juice .25oz / 7,5ml orgeat syrup .5oz / 15ml melon liqueur .5oz / 15ml blue curaçao • Preparation: Fill the glass with ice. Pour in order: rums, pineapple juice, lime juice, orange juice, orgeat syrup, melon liqueur, and finally blue curaçao. Garnish with fresh or dehydrated pineapple and pineapple leaves. Serve with a @surfsidesips glass tiki straw. • Follow me for additional tutorials, drink recipes, and drinking stories from around the world. • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #mahimahi #maitai #rum #tropical #specialitycocktails #customcocktails #garnishgame #tiki #tikiculture #cocktailoftheday #drinkoftheday #tikicocktails #pauhana #hilife #luckywelivehawaii #hawaiilife

Aloha! Have you ever had a Yellow Bird? 🐤 [Equal Parts Cocktails] • The first time I ever heard of the Yellow Bird cocktail had to be on a cruise ship as “the drink of the day” or at some all-inclusive resort. The name conjures up vacation vibes immediately to me and was always an exciting drink to get since it seemed different. 💛 • The IBA official recipe consists of rum, Galliano, triple sec, and lime juice. So far I have never owned a bottle of Galliano, although I always look admiringly at the bottle each time I’m at the liquor store… 🤩 • From my own experience, I have found that most Yellow Bird cocktails have had banana liqueur in them, so that is what I decided to include in this equal parts tribute. In place of Galliano, I have chosen the fantastic Yellow Chartreuse. Rum and lime remain, so I feel like this is a tropical and delicious version of the original! 🏝 • Save this recipe and follow along as I share as many equal part cocktails as I can! 🍸 • Cocktail: “Toucan” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: .75oz / 22,5ml Plantation 3 Stars rum @plantation.rum .75oz / 22,5ml Yellow Chartreuse @chartruese1605 .75oz / 22,5ml Giffard Banane du Brésil @giffardusa .75oz / 22,5ml fresh lime juice • Preparation: Shake ingredients with ice / Fine strain into glass / Garnish with pineapple leaf and @cocktailcritters toucan pin • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #toucan #yellowbird #equalparts #rum #banana #chartruese #lime #whatsonyourbackbar

Aloha! Do you love or hate cilantro? 🌿 • I actually had no idea that there were people that hated cilantro because to them it tasted like soap!?! 🧼 • I grew up in California and I’m pretty sure cilantro was a core ingredient in most things I ate. My mom loves it and was always incorporating it into just about everything. It’s wasn’t until years later that I met someone that hated cilantro and told me about the subset of people that feel the same. 😖 • If you are like me and love cilantro, you will be excited to try out this delicious margarita! I found it on one of @queenbeemixology’s stories (I think Kelly was out having drinks at a bar or restaurant) and made a quick note of the ingredients. Since there was no recipe shared, I just made something up that I knew would be tasty! 😋 • Happy Monday everyone! 🤗 • Cocktail: “Jalapeño Cilantro Margarita” Glass: Rocks • Ingredients: 2oz / 60ml tequila .75oz / 22,5ml triple sec .5oz / 15ml lime juice .5oz / 15ml jalapeño cilantro syrup* • Jalapeño Cilantro syrup: 1 part water 1.5 parts sugar Cilantro Half jalapeño sliced Dissolve sugar in water at medium heat. Add cilantro and jalapeño slices and let cool. • Preparation: Shake ingredients with ice and fine strain into glass with large ice cube. Garnish with jalapeño slices. • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #margarita #margaritas #jalepeno #cilantro #tequila #tequilatime #mexicanfood

Aloha! Do you love finding a new Mai Tai recipe? 🍹🤩 • I know Barlow (@theweekendmixologist) feel’s the same as me since he shared this recipe that he had found on another feed! 🙌 • In this interesting variation, cognac is the base spirit. What an amazing idea for a Mai Tai! 🍹 • I love combining a cognac based orange liqueur with cognac, so this drink is definitely rocking that rich flavor. 🤤 • Cocktail: “Tai Du Mai” Glass: Highball • Ingredients: 1oz / 30ml cognac @ferrandcognac .5oz / 15ml overproof rum @wrayandnephewus 1oz / 30ml fresh lime juice .5oz / 15ml pineapple gum syrup @liberandco .25oz / 7,5ml orange liqueur @ferrandcognac .25oz / 7,5ml orgeat @liberandco • Preparation: Add ingredients to shaker with small scoop of crushed ice / Whip shake until ice has melted / Open pour into glass / Fill up with crushed ice / Garnish with mint sprig / Serve with @surfsidesips reusable straw • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #taidumai #maitai #cognac #rum

Aloha! Are you a fan of the Paloma? 🕊 [Equal Parts Cocktails] • I recently grabbed a grapefruit and was looking for a recipe to use it in. For years I wouldn’t have ever bought a grapefruit as I was convinced I did not like them. Then a while back some friends brought us a farm box of fruits and veggies and it had lots of grapefruit! I didn’t want them to go to waste, so I decided to try using them in cocktails. Wow…I had no idea how many amazing drinks could be made with fresh grapefruit juice! Now I never pass up a grapefruit if I have the chance! 🍊 • With fresh grapefruit juice and the Paloma on my mind, I was inspired to create this equal parts cocktail. I chose one of my favorite tequilas that is infused with pineapple and jalapeño. To up the spicy I added in some Ancho Reyes. To round it out, Grand Marnier gives some sweetness and depth. This is definitely a must try for my fellow Paloma fans! 🕊 • Fun fact…did you know Paloma means “dove”? 🕊 • Save this recipe and follow along as I share as many equal part cocktails as I can! 🍸 • Cocktail: “Dangerous Dove” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: .75oz / 22,5ml Pineapple & Jalapeño infused tequila @danostequila .75oz / 22,5ml Ancho Reyes @anchoreyes .75oz / 22,5ml Grand Marnier @grandmarnierusa .75oz / 22,5ml fresh grapefruit juice • Preparation: Shake ingredients with ice / Fine strain into glass / Garnish with @thecocktailgarnish dehydrated grapefruit slices • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #dangerousdove #equalparts #tequila #anchoreyes #grandmarnier #lime #paloma

Aloha! This cocktail is probably the reason I wanted a bottle of Yellow Chartreuse. 💛😄 [Equal Parts Cocktails] • Described as the ‘love child’ of the Last Word and the Paper Plane, this cocktail was created by Joaquín Simó (@simojoaquin) when he was tending bar at @deathandcompany in NYC. 🗽 • Combining the chartreuse from the former (although yellow instead of green) and aperol from the latter, this drink provides a wonderful mix of smoky, herbal, and sour. If you are a mezcal fan, you are definitely going to want to gather the ingredients for this delightful cocktail. 🤩 • Save this recipe and follow along as I share as many equal part cocktails as I can! 🍸 • Cocktail: “Naked & Famous” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: .75oz / 22,5ml Mezcal @elsilencio .75oz / 22,5ml Aperol @aperolusa .75oz / 22,5ml Yellow Chartreuse @chartruese1605 .75oz / 22,5ml fresh lime juice • Preparation: Shake ingredients with ice / Fine strain into glass / Garnish with lime peel twist • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #nakedandfamous #equalparts #mezcal #aperol #chartruese #lime #enjoythesilence

Aloha! Happy Sunday! Here’s an extremely refreshing recipe that I found on @queenbeemixology’s feed and just had to mix up! 🥒🌿🍹 • Summer has probably slipped away for most in the Northern Hemisphere, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t looking for that light, refreshing beverage that harks you back to those summer afternoons. ☀️😎 • This combination of cucumber, mint, and lime just really get those summer vibes flowing. I didn’t make up the mint simple syrup like Kelly, but fresh mint muddled in the syrup with the cucumber more than sufficed. I also decided to add a splash of club soda to mine to give it that bit of effervescence. 😋 • I got to use my new @vinobravous bar tools making this drink and they are so amazing! They are professional quality and look fantastic. 🤩 • I hope you enjoying your weekend! 🤗 • Cocktail: “Refreshmint” Glass: Goblet • Ingredients: 1.5oz / 45ml gin (I used Bosun’s Navy Strength from @holystonedistilling) 1oz / 30ml simple syrup .5oz / 15ml St Germain @stgermainuk .5oz / 15ml fresh lime juice 3-4 slices chopped cucumber 1 sprig mint Club soda @regattacraftmixers • Preparation: Add mint, cucumber, and simple syrup to shaker and muddle together / Add rest of ingredients and shake with ice / Fine strain into glass filled with ice / Top up with club soda / Garnish with slices of lime and cucumber and a sprig of mint / Serve with a @surfsidesips reusable straw • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #refreshmint #summer #refreshing #gin #stgermain #mint #cucumber

Aloha! Happy #flashbackfriday everyone! • Here’s another custom equal parts cocktail creation that you might have missed! 🦈 ===================================== I don’t often end up name submissions for drinks, but I’m so glad I asked for this one! 🦈💙 • What I did not share about this drink in the original story is that it is based on a the Last Word template of 4 equal parts. That being the case, I was leaning toward some kind of play on the original cocktail name. I had gone through a number of of ideas in my head: Last Swim, Last Bite, and possibly just Fin (double meaning intended). 😀 • However, the submission from @theteacherslounge95603 just really worked for me. I feel like it embodied both the inspiration and the scene…the fin is indeed near! 🦈 • The cocktail itself is a spicy, smoky treat featuring Mezcal, Ancho Reyes, and orange liqueur. The sweet & sour mix brings it all together and balances out the spicy. 🌶 • Cocktail: “The Fin Is Near” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: 1 part Mezcal @elsilencio 1 part Ancho Reyes Verde @anchoreyes 1 part Blue Curaçao @de_kuyper_cocktails 1 part Sweet & Sour mix* • Sweet & Sour mix: 1 part fresh lemon juice 1 part fresh lime juice 1 part simple syrup 1 part water • Preparation: Shake all ingredients with ice / Fine strain into chilled glass / Garnish with @luxardousa cherry and lime peel shark fin • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #thefinisnear #sharkweek #lastword #mezcal #anchoreyes #spicy #blue #bluecocktails #sharethesilence #garnishgame #cocktailrecipe #drinkrecipe #addclasswithglass #nomoreplastic #pauhana #hilife #luckywelivehawaii #hawaiilife

Aloha! Congratulations, I’ve found your new favorite cocktail! You can stop looking and start drinking this immediately! 🤤😍🔥 [Equal Parts Cocktails] • This cocktail was created by Grant Wheeler of @thegarretbars in NYC. It was featured in the June 2016 issue of @imbibe magazine. I definitely did not see it back then and maybe a lot of you have never heard of this cocktail either. 🤭 • Up until a few months ago I had never owned a bottle of mezcal and probably only had tried it in a couple drinks ever. Now that I have a bottle of great mezcal I can’t stop using it! 🤩 • I also really love anything with falernum (if elderflower is “bartender’s ketchup” then falernum is definitely a “mixologist’s mustard”!). The combination of smoky, sweet, sour, and citrus is outstanding! A dash of spicy is added to take things over the top! 🔥 • I didn’t have the cited bitters on hand and instead used a few drops of Hawaiian chili pepper water. You could also put a slice of fresh habanero pepper in the shaker as an alternative. 🌶 • Save this recipe and follow along as I share as many equal part cocktails as I can! 🍸 • Cocktail: “Spicy Dead Lady” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: .75oz / 22,5ml Mezcal @elsilencio .75oz / 22,5ml Aperol @aperolusa .75oz / 22,5ml Velvet Falernum @jdt_velvet_falernum .75oz / 22,5ml fresh lime juice 1 dash Scrappy’s Hellfire bitters @scrappysbitters • Preparation: Shake ingredients with ice / Fine strain into glass / Garnish with @thecocktailgarnish dehydrated lime wheel • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #spicydeadlady #equalparts #mezcal #aperol #falernum #lime #spicy

Aloha! Have you dabbled with origami? [Equal Parts Cocktails] • A little while back Ant (@cocktails_for_breakfast) made a Last Word riff called “Professor Of Logic”. It featured a Japanese gin that he had recently acquired and sounded delightful. 💛 • I didn’t have the gin but thought that I should just further the Japanese influence with some shochu and yuzu that I had! 🇯🇵 • I kept the yellow chartreuse, but decided on some Preserve liqueur instead of Licor 43. If you don’t happen to have this tantalizing spirit, you can substitute with an elderflower liqueur. 🌼 • Since this has now been reworked into a brand new cocktail, a new name that fits the overall theme seemed appropriate. • Save this recipe and follow along as I share as many equal part cocktails as I can! 🍸 • Cocktail: “Paper Crane” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: .75oz / 22,5ml Tsunami Shochu @holystonedistilling .75oz / 22,5ml Yellow Chartreuse @chartreuse1605 .75oz / 22,5ml Yuzu liqueur @choya_usa .75oz / 22,5ml Preserve liqueur @alpinedistilling • Preparation: Shake ingredients with ice / Fine strain into glass / Garnish with paper crane • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #papercrane #paperplane #lastword #equalparts #shochu #yuzu #alpinemoments #chartreuse @choya_official @chartreuse.fr @chartreuse_uk

Aloha! Happy #flashbackfriday everyone! • Here’s another custom equal parts cocktail that I created for a special occasion. ✨ ===================================== Happy Star Wars Day! 🛸 • It’s always so fun to see everyone’s creative expressions when a theme as exciting as Star Wars is at hand! 🤩 • The inspiration for my cocktail is the final battle between Anakin and Obi Wan on the fiery, outer rim planet Mustafar. 🌋 • I chose to riff on the always classic Last Word cocktail, using the all equal parts template. I chose some obscure ingredients, so I believe I have created yet another variation of this oft riffed cocktail. 🍸 • There was a cool tutorial I recently saw that showed how to make a garnish using charcoal. I couldn’t think of a better garnish for this lava planet inspired drink! ⬛️ • May the Fourth be with you! 😀 • Cocktail: “Jedi’s End” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: .75oz / 22,5ml Machuca spiced rum @machucaworld .75oz / 22,5ml strawberry infused Campari @campariusa .75oz / 22,5ml gingercello @marbledistilling .75oz / 22,5ml fresh lime juice • Preparation: Add all ingredients to shaker with ice and shake until chilled. Fine strain into coupe glass. Garnish with cooled lava from the planet Mustafar. Include a @surfsidesips glass light saber for effect. • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #jedisend #lastword #starwars #sithlord #jedi #mustafar #maythefouthbewithyou #starwarsday #rum #ginger #garnishgame #cocktailrecipe #drinkrecipe #addclasswithglass #nomoreplastic #pauhana #hilife #luckywelivehawaii #hawaiilife @libbey

Aloha! Sometimes I wonder where cocktail names really come from… 🤔 [Equal Parts Cocktails] • Today’s cocktail is credited to acclaimed bartender Harry MacElhone of Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, supposedly created in the 1920’s. It’s an extension of the famous Sidecar cocktail, adding in rum and leaving the sugar rim behind. • I love a great cognac cocktail and was excited to open up my new bottle of Pierre Ferrand to shake this up. I decided to double up the cognac quotient by using an orange liqueur with a cognac base, instead of the usual Cointreau or Triple Sec called for. So much deliciousness! 😋 • Save this recipe and follow along as I share as many equal part cocktails as I can! 🍸 • Cocktail: “Between The Sheets” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: .75oz / 22,5ml Cognac @ferrandcognac .75oz / 22,5ml Dry Curaçao @ferrandcognac .75oz / 22,5ml Light Rum .75oz / 22,5ml fresh lemon juice • Preparation: Shake ingredients with ice / Fine strain into glass / Garnish with lemon peel • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #betweenthesheets #sidecar #equalparts #cognac #curacao #rum #lemon

Aloha! Need a little bright ray of sunshine to start your week? ☀️ [Equal Parts Cocktails] • Here’s another amazing equal parts cocktail adapted from the Corpse Reviver No. 2 recipe by Sam Ross (@samueljoelross) when he was working at Milk & Honey in NYC back in 2008. 🌻 • This is such a bright and tasty cocktail with some depth added by the absinthe rinse. I am so honored to have both Holystone gin and absinthe to use together in this cocktail! 🌻 • I did take some liberty in swapping the original Cointreau with some very delightful kumquat liqueur. It’s probably slightly sweeter than Cointreau, but that is fine with me. 🌻 • Save this recipe and follow along as I share as many equal part cocktails as I can! 🍸 • Cocktail: “Sunflower” Glass: Coupe • Ingredients: .75oz / 22,5ml Bosun’s Navy Strength gin @holystonedistilling .75oz / 22,5ml FAIR Kumquat liqueur @fairdrinks .75oz / 22,5ml St Germain @stgermainuk .75oz / 22,5ml fresh lemon juice Rinse Apparition Absinthe Verte @holystonedistilling • Preparation: Rinse glass with small amount of absinthe / Shake ingredients with ice / Fine strain into glass / Garnish with lemon peel • Keep exploring the world 🗺 one drink at a time. • Mahalo! 🤙 • • • #sunflower #corpsereviver #equalparts #gin #absinthe #elderflower #lemon #kumquat
